Research in American Studies
This is a brief guide to some of the major library and internet resources for research in American Studies. Remember that depending on your topic, resources in other subject areas may also be useful. If you want more resources or assistance using these, please set up a personal research session to meet with a librarian.

The first and best place to find books about your topic is the library's catalog.
